After I’ve read the error message, I sometimes run into one of these 3 problems:

Each person is represented by a stick figure with curly hair.

1. misreading the message

person (thinking) ok, it says the error is in file X

spoiler: it actually said file Y

2. disregarding what the message is saying

person (thinking): well, the message says X, but that’s impossible…

spoiler: it was possible

3. not actually reading it

person (thinking): ok, I read it…

spoiler: she did not read it
